BOARD OF DIRECTORS
From 2002 to 2006, while attending San Diego State University, Johnzie joined Sigma Nu Fraternity and actively participated in the school's Greek Life operations. There, he served as Activities Director, Philanthropy Chair, and Non-Profit Liaison, leading 2,500 students through service activities and events to benefit local non-profit organizations and greater community. Through this experience, he discovered a passion in the non-profit industry and a seed was planted to start an organization encouraging community volunteerism.
Johnzie continued to serve in administrative roles in social and community groups and in July 2016, he organized an event to serve 500 meals to the homeless in Venice Beach. With the success of this event and encouragement from the volunteers in attendance, Peace Love Unity Respect Foundation (PLUR Foundation) was formed and achieved 501(c)3 status before year end. Together with its strong member base, PLUR Foundation has organized numerous volunteer events serving multiple demographics. From providing aid to the homeless, lonely elderly, children of low-income families, at-risk youth, and to the environment, thousands of lives have been positively impacted.
